Best helicopter ride ever! Didn't actually do the landing. Jamie the pilot was great. Seeing the glacier from above was breathtaking.

Our experience with this company was beyond what we could of asked for, We paid for a flight and were kindly upgraded to a bigger tour. The staff were friendly and informative. The pilot was so nice, very informative and went out of his way to make us all feel like we were getting the best experience!

The reviews pretty much sum this experience up - fantastic scenic flight experience along and up the gorge before landing on pristine white carpet of lush snow - felt like Neil Armstrong - first steps on the moon - well not quite but as close as I'll get, Special feeling walking across the crusty rooftop of a very ancient but still alive and moving glacier and a step back in time to the ice ages. Luckily for us - the tourist season was just kicking back to life in Fox and Franz Josef so not too busy and made for a very unique experience. Terrific pilot - Jarod (pretty sure got name correct - apologies if not) typical Kiwi cousin - happy for a chat and super stealthy in grabbing a quick snap and printing out a souvenir shot for the album. This is a very worthwhile experience if you are able to do it - bit tight for space in the smaller chopper but they do have a larger one in the shed, first time on one for myself and a great buzz - we both felt like Cheshire Cats and couldn't keep the smiles of our faces. Great service at booking and during the too short trip up and back, would love to do another flight in one of the other highlight areas in NZ - the place has it all in spades or Aces - lucky Kiwi's.

Thank you Stephe... for such a fantastic 5 star rating and even better feedback. I am so pleased you enjoyed your heli flight so much and allowed time to write about it! It is certainly an incredible open space of mountains and white snow you just cannot experience from the ground. We are certainly lucky and thank you so much for travelling all this way to experience it for yourself.

What an amazing experience! The scenery is stunning and the close up view of the glacier is extremely special. We landed on the snow and saw the sheer beauty of the glacier and surrounds. The pilot was very professional.
